When planning a family winter escape, finding somewhere that ticks all the boxes is half the challenge. Once you’ve got everyone packed and managed to find a dog-sitter, all you want is a hassle-free holiday that makes everyone happy. Look no further. Tignes is a favourite, well known for offering value for money. |
Great for all levels, there are a number of excellent schools that welcome tiny tots from aged three and above. For parents who want to hit the more advanced pistes there are fantastic childcare services available, meaning you can have just as much fun as the kids. Although the lifts aren’t open all day, there’s no need to panic. There’s still a huge range of activities for little ones to enjoy, the Lagon Centre being a firm favourite. With a 25-metre swimming pool, a play pool and a water slide, there’s no chance of getting bored.
If you like to eat out, there are a number of lovely restaurants just a short walk away, as well as low priced creperies and pizza parlours - perfect for filling rumbling tummies after a day in the snow! And don’t worry about traipsing to and from the slopes, there’s a wide choice of purpose built accommodation from private apartments to catered ski chalets. Tigneshas an accommodation solution for every group.
Here are a couple of my favourite hideaways:
Located directly opposite the the Marmottons children’s slope, the Corniche is a perfect place to call home during your stay. With spacious bedrooms and cosy suites, you’ll be able to relax after a long day of fun without getting on top of each other. The decor is modern yet homely, and the stylish communal area is a great place to unwind, with a large fireplace separating the lounge and dining rooms. In the evening, the kids can snuggle up with a cup of hot chocolate in the Children’s Snug and watch one of their favourite films. When it comes to catered ski chalets, Tignes has got you covered in style and comfort.
The Hotel Aiguille Percée
Having undergone an extensive refurbishment in 2013, the Hotel Aiguille Percée now offers gorgeous family suites and interconnecting rooms, great for kids to share! All the guest rooms have been spruced up and have their own modern rustic feel that’s gives a warm welcome.
Its central location gives guests stunning views of the lake below and the Grande Motte glacier in all its splendour. But it’s not just a pretty face: slopes and shops are easy to get to and you’ll find the main square where the schools congregate just around the corner. In the evenings, youngsters can make new friends at the Children’s Club or watch a movie while mum and dad can take themselves out for quiet meal.
So, what are you waiting for? With all this in easy reach - fun activities for all, affordable prices, catered ski chalets – Tignes is the ideal destination for your next family getaway!
